Philanthropy News Digest announced that Facebook will again partner with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to match up to $2 Million in donations for the 2017 #GivingTuesday event on November 28. Both organizations are contributing $1 million each.
Donations to participating nonprofit organizations through Facebook's charitable giving tools on November 28 (beginning at 8:00 am EST) will be matched (up to $50,000 per nonprofit or $1,000 per fundraiser or donate button) until the matching funds run out. All matched funds will be paid out to nonprofits through Network for Good's donor-advised fund. Facebook will waive all fees for #GivingTuesday donations made with its tools during the day.
